Each year, Pornhub releases the most interesting statistics about searches, viewing habits and trends on the website. The report measures the popularity of certain genres of porn, celebrity name searches, and so forth.

Donald Trump’s win in the election has led to the rise of something incredibly unexpected: searches for Trump porn.

In Pornhub’s newly released 2016 Year in Review report, the site revealed that searches for Trump-related names saw a tremendous increase following The Donald’s election victory on November 9.

Despite being the least talked about member of the Trump family, searches for Tiffany reigned, with a 2,548% increase. Melania was up 1,538%, Ivanka 1,169% and the President Elect himself at 874%. Searches for the name Donald Trump totaled slightly over 3.6 million. Yuge!

Hillary Clinton was far less popular at 364k total searches. Sad! Trump was the clear winner of the popular vote in porn.

Searches for the former Miss Universe Alicia Machado peaked on September 30 just days after Clinton called out the President Elect for his demeaning remarks about her. Searches for Machado increased by 6,540% that day.

Humorously, searches for Boris Johnson also spiked following the Brexit campaign, seeing an increase of 14,624%—it was because someone uploaded a video titled “Dumb British blond f*cks 15 million people at once” with his name tagged in it.

Pornhub users watched almost 92 billion videos in 2016. That number is only expected to grow this year. We’d be surprised if it didn’t.
